AN Elsecar couple is spending a two month holiday in Australia - visiting family who went for a holiday and decided to stay.

Rita and Brian Oldfield, from Elsecar, are visiting their daughter Susan, her husband James Herbert, and their grandchildren.

Gail Raad, the couple's niece who also lives in Australia, said: "Sue and James left Elsecar for an adventure to Oz in November 2010 and are staying for another year, enjoying the slow paced lifestyle, casual living and beautiful sunshine.

"They are missing all their friends and familly so it was great for them to have Rita and Brian here."
